I was working on this great little baby sweater for Lila, as part of the Ravellenic Games (for those not aware, the Ravellenic Games is a sort of knit-along that happens during the length of the Olympics. You cast on during the opening ceremonies, and you have to finish your project by the end of the closing ceremonies. It’s pretty fun!) As you can see from the photos below, I did not quite get there in time:
I love the colours (hooray for stash busting!), but I ran out of the natural main colour for the body, and thought I could use charcoal instead. but then I was running out of Charcoal, and I’d really like to do the collar and button band in charcoal, and in order to extend the life of both I added in the dark fuchsia … but that stripe up there is looking a bit more 70’s than I was aiming for, so I’m going to rip it back a bit and get more of the Natural, and finish it the way I’ve intended. The size is 18-24 months, but since my little one is in bigger clothes, I went up a needle size, and I’m confident about it fitting her for a while. For more information on my yarn, you can check out my project page on Ravelry.
